    Suggestions for actual quilting this top..

    Looking for suggestions on quilting this quilt top. I do not free motion quilt, so doing something like free motion squiggles is not an option. Suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!!!!

      if you want to go a little fancier how about cross hatching the sashes and borders? Still easy if you use painters tape to mark your lines.

        There's a fun wavy stitch on many sewing machines that looks really cute on children's quilts. If you look at the green on the boat you'll see the stitch I'm referring to. See if you have it on your machine. You can play with length and width of the stitch. A very modern design is to run lines of stitching from top to bottom. If you use clear thread it will give awesome texture but not take any focus away from your piecing. If you do decide to use clear thread buy a good quality polyester. I bought a large spool from Superior Threads that I've been using for a while. That spool is going to last me a really, really long time. I use it on the bobbin as well. Because I do so much all-over quilting I hardly ever use thread with a color in it. I prefer the texture without seeing the stitching.

        Looking at your quilt top, I might do straight lines in a grid over the images (like I did in this border) and then use the wavy stitch in the borders using the channel quilting I mentioned above.

          Serpentine stitch if you have it on your machine. Increase length and width of stitch. So forgiving if your lines are not straight. I use on quilts for toddlers and guys to reinforce the seams since they tend to be harder on a quilt. If you do horizontal and then again vertical, looks like puzzle pieces on the back. My friends thought I did free motion quilting. I think I used settings of 7.0 and 3.5
